Harrods announces partnership with SHOWstudio Fashion Film Awards

This October, up-and-coming filmmakers from all over the world will showcase their talent, skills and creativity at the SHOWstudio Fashion Film Awards, in partnership for the first time with luxury department store Harrods.

Founded and directed by Nick Knight, SHOWstudio is the pioneer of the new medium of fashion film. Through its researched projects and ground-breaking series, it remains the leading home for fashion film today. Consistently pushing the boundaries of moving image within fashion, experimenting with new technologies and championing emerging and established talents, SHOWstudio collaborates with some of the most influential and acclaimed cultural icons including Lady Gaga and Kanye West and showcases designs from all the top fashion brands alongside creating in depth projects with the likes of Maison Margiela and Alexander McQueen.

“Every fashion designer creates their garments to be seen in motion – therefore, fashion film is the best way to understand their vision. I started SHOWstudio in 2000 to showcase the best fashion film and to encourage this ground-breaking new medium. Almost 20 years later, we are seeing brilliant talents from across the world creating fashion film, and the Internet is the preferred way to view and share their work. SHOWstudio and I are delighted to partner with Harrods for the 2019 SHOWstudio Fashion Film Awards and to find, showcase and celebrate tomorrow’s stars of fashion film.”
